Overcoming Postoperative Hematoma Hernia?
Regards, about two weeks ago after surgery my scrotum hernia was swollen (like before surgery) but a little hardened. According to the surgeon in charge, there was blood that got into the scrotal bag and clotted there. The solution for this doctor is to try to suck the blood out with a syringe, while the blood clots inside. What do the urology specialists say is the solution, I’m confused?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously, we apologize because in this HealthReplies.com forum questions are only answered by general practitioners, where if you want to consult a urologist, you can meet directly with the help of our doctor search feature or click the following link to a list of urology specialists.

A hematoma is a collection of blood that is not normally outside the blood vessel. In quantity, this amount of blood varies, from a small speck to so large that it causes swelling. Among the risk factors and causes for the appearance of this condition in a person are:
Side effects of blood thinners
Bone injury or fracture
Certain medical conditions that cause a decreased number of platelets
Lumps from blood vessels
A surgical procedure that causes blood to burst
The type of hematoma also varies depending on its location, such as ear hematoma, breast hematoma and so on. To treat this condition in general, it can be done by resting a cold compress and positioning the body part higher so that blood flow to the hematoma area is reduced. Heat therapy has also been used by some doctors to treat hematomas. However, because your problem has entered the realm of specialization, our advice is to immediately visit a urologist so that you can be examined directly and determine the best treatment. So, hopefully it answers your question.
